Unit Tests for Large-Scale Brain Network Dynamics

The SciUnit framework was developed to help researchers create unit tests for scientific models. Currently, unit tests exist for models of single neurons and small networks thereof. However, unit tests for models concerned with large-scale brain network dynamics, such as meso-scale, mean-field descriptions and corticothalamic circuit models have not been developed yet. During the summer, I plan to develop tests to validate predictions from a corticothalamic neural mass model against relevant features of EEG data.
